Here's a look at how the Eastern Conference matches we highlighted in our preview last weekend ended up.

Saint Louis FC 4 - 3 Tampa Bay Rowdies
Toyota Stadium, Saint Louis, Mo.

The Rowdies conceded twice in five minutes, then rallied with three goals of their own to take a 3-2 halftime lead, but couldn't hold on and ended up losing after conceding twice in the second half.

Ottawa Fury FC 3 - 1 Charlotte Independence
TD Place, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

Three different players scored for Ottawa as the Canadian side put an end to Charlotte's 12-match unbeaten run in convincing fashion. The Independence still retained the top spot in the East though, due to teams around it dropping points as well.

Louisville City FC 5 - 0 FC Cincinnati
Slugger Field, Louisville, Kentucky

Louisville won the weekend with a sellout crowd on hand to see the home team thrash its rivals to the tune of 5-0.
